To add a taskbar to a C# application

P: n/a
To add a taskbar to a C# application
Am currently developing a windows console application in C# (.NET
2003) and have a requirement to build a taskbar. The windows
application is designed to launch MS applications such as MS Word,
Excel, IE etc apart from third party applications which include web
based and client server applications. This taskbar would require to
hold applications which are launched from the applications console.
Typically, when we minimize the MS applications or third party
applications, it automatically is held in the System Taskbar. I am
looking for a way to have these applications on console application
instead of the system task bar.

Appreciate any help in this regard.

Thanks

Vijay,

The only way I can see this happening is to call the SetParent API
function to set the parent of the application window. However, this can
have unwanted side effects, so I can't say that it will work perfectly.
However, I do not see any other alternative.

Hope this helps.
